UK Holocaust denier Michele Renouf under investigation

German police are investigating a British woman for suspected incitement after she questioned the Holocaust during a far-right protest in the eastern city of Dresden.

A spokeswoman for Dresden police said Australian-born Michele Renouf is one of two people being investigated for remarks made at a neo-Nazi rally on Saturday commemorating those killed in the 1945 Allied bombing of the city.

Videos show Renouf saying the only Holocaust perpetrated in Europe was against German civilians. Publicly denying the Nazis' well-documented murder of six million Jews is a criminal offence in Germany.

Renouf has in the past supported Holocaust-deniers such as British historian David Irving.

Dresden police spokeswoman Jana Ulbricht said officers ordered the rally be dissolved after determining that two speakers may have broken the law.
